That's how you know your show is setting off a Big Bang in the science world.

Jim Parsons's character, Dr. Sheldon Cooper, has taken TV viewers and scientists by storm and the bees are thanking him too.

Sheldon's catchphrase, bazinga!, is now the name of a new species of bee!

Officially named Euglossa bazinga, this type of orchid bee was discovered in Brazil by biologist Andre Nemesio from the Universidade Federal de Uberlandia

Executive producer Steven Molaro says the following on the honor:

We are always extremely flattered when the science community embraces our show,Sheldon would be honored to know that Euglossa bazinga was inspired by him. In fact, after 'Mothra' and griffins, bees are his third-favorite flying creatures.

Bazinga! We wonder what other things the Big Bang Theory has inspired!
